I am looking for info on GGrandparents. My mother's father : Joseph Bartholomew Chrobak Emigrated from Lazy Austria (before 1918 – no longer Austria now) as a small child with his parents: John Joseph Chrobak and Anastazie Polak
J. Bartholomew was about 14 months old which means they left the Old Country about Feb-Jun 1913. He had two siblings: 1. Mary Josephine Chrobak (m. 1. Paul Sedlock and 2. Emil Sustik) 2. John Chrobak (pretty sure he was born in US)
I know that the Richetti family traveled on the same ship with the Chrobak family. The Richettis went on to Oklahoma and the Chrobaks to Western Pennsylvania.
I know that my grandfather (JB Chrobak) had a cousin in the old country: Jan Lekke But I don't know if he was a cousin through Chrobak or Polak. Any advice of info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
Paula Renaud P.S. for Renard Chrobak - if you're out there! I know you contacted my sister (m. Lentz) a number of years ago - but she lost track of any info the two of you may have shared!
